Hollow tie flies where you base the fly on a splayed out base of bucktail are perfect for pike flies, it creates volume without volume so to speak. But if you don’t have the correct color of bucktail, then what do you do? You use Bug Bond of course! This fly is a hollow tie, just that instead of bucktail I have used a long fibered flash dubbing which has been treated with bug bond lite and then combed trough thoroughly. Creating the same flexible base to tie the fly over as bucktail would have done!
